Waiting
Waiting (2021, Single, 1 Tracks)

Strange Boy combines hip hop and Irish traditional music, the old and new cultural influences dominant in this country, with a sophistication that would have you swearing this genre always existed. And maybe it has.
The track was produced by Enda Gallery.

The Pope
The Pope (2020, Single, 1 Tracks)

Written from the perspective of a 12 year old who's wildest dream is to attain the perks of being the biggest rockstar on the planet while denouncing everything holy and sacred that comes with the job. Long live the pope!
